What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

In The Not So Distant Future

Greetings. I am Siri3000, your automated cake decorator. How may I help you?

"Siri, I need a cake."

I am programmed with 12 billion different cake styles. What kind of cake would you like?

"Well, I was kinda hoping for a soccer cake..."

I have made 23,000 soccer cakes. Commencing slideshow mode.

Cake 1:

"Um, you don't have to show me every ca..."


Cake 2:

"Really, this isn't necessary..."


Cake 3:

"Ok, I get the idea."


Cake 4:



May I help you with something else?

"Okay. Yes. The cake is for my team..."

Making By Tim cake:

"NO! TEAM. Like a sports team. It's the Trojans..."


Making Trojan covered cake.

That will be $374.50. Charging credit card...

"WAIT! I wanted a photo cake!"


Making photo cake.

[flash bulb goes off]

"What - NO! Not of ME!!

"Okay, STOP! Just... stop. I don't have the photo for the cake now, but I will bring it in. Okay?

Spit coffee all over the keyboard again. Will I ever learn to not drink coffee with my morning dose of Cakewrecks? Nope, never will and don't care, it's SO worth it for the daily joy Jen and John (thoj) bring to each of us! Hilarious re-post.

What's a siri? Does it really exist, or is it a part of the joke?

God I wish I knew the backstory to some of these cakes. 😂

Oh wow, I don't know what's funnier - totally believing that Siri WILL be like that in the near future or that Trojan cake! Oh my goodness, what happened with that? Did they actually ask for a cake that looked like it had been attacked by an octopus or do they just have a condom fetish? *BOGGLE*

That Trojan cake is a trypophobic's nightmare. All the patterns of holes in all the sizes!

I was at the last showing of the MST3K live tour Saturday night, so I totally had the theme song in my head ready to go. Now I'm trying to decide what was worse, the movie they screened of these wrecks.

@Rosie - Siri is Apple's automated voice assistant.

Hilarious post, and one I hadn't seen originally!

I am afraid to ask why there appears to be condoms on that wedding cake. I really hope the poor bride didn't kill the wreckerator for that lol.

Well, the flowers on top of the Trojan cake are pretty...but I'm really wondering what the cake was *supposed* to look like. Whatever they were going for, I don't think the baker succeded. :s

August 16, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

LOL - I just noticed that the soccer team in the picture on the "Will bring it in" cake *really* is the Trojans!

Nicely played. Very nicely played.
